Please check every hit I hope one of them will work.

1. Changed the default paper size to A4 in Printer sitting this will work.
2. Also try replacing the printer cable, reboot both computer and printer and try reinstalling the driver after removing it from the Control Panel.
3.
If you have some tehnical skills, you can remove the cartridge and desassembly the printhead (where the cartridge are in) and do the following:

First of all, look if there is somne ink lines on the nozzle part of the printhead. If you put a paper-tissue on the nozzles and it let on paper the 4 lines (black and colors) than maybe it's useless to clean the printhead, ink is comming trough and dont know why paper comes out blank.
If there are dry:
Put a paper-tissue on a small plate (like a coffee-cup plate), then put some boiling water on it, just 2~3mm of water over the tissue.
Put the printhead with the nozzles part downside on the tissue, in the hot water.
Let it stay there in the water 30 min.
Put the cartridges back on the printhead (without installing it in the printer), rap it in an other clean tissue, than shake it strongy as if you want to force ink to get out trough the nozzles. Then clean gentle the nozzle part of the printhead on some sheets of tissue.
Get the cartridges again out of the printhead, install it in the printer, then install the cartridges again and run a few cleaning processes from the printers maintenance software.

It should work. If you dont have the tehnicall skills needed, Canon gotcha, or you can visit a local specialist to make all this for you, they usualy have better equipmens, as ultrasonic cleaners and special solvents that makes all this easyer.

If after that still dont work, it's bad, it's not from cartridges or printhead, it's something else... Dont know what, from a distance.

Rate the solution if it helped you!

Thx.

Unplug printer USB cable and re-install software drivers using printer install disk.

If you do not have disk download and run driver installer from HP PSC 1410 All-in-One Printer

Start installation with printer USB cable unplugged. The installer program will tell you when to connect printer USB.

To check whether this behaviour depends by the printhead perform a noozles test, you can start it accessing printer properties. If some lines are missing the problem can be the printhead, the cleaning pump or cartridges, otherwise problem is in printer settings.

    First try to make a copy from the all-in-one and check the hardware
    functionality of the printer. If we are able to make a copy fine from
    the printer, then check whether we are experiencing this issue while
    printing from all the applications or a particular application,
    depending on that we will have the solution.

Use the HP desktop control for print head cleaning. You may also need new ink cartridges, if it has been sitting a long time without use the ink may have dried up inside. If this doesn't help you will need to remove the print heads and clean them manually. Considering the price of printers these days, it may be a much better idea to just buy a new printer. Most new printers only cost about the same as what the ink cartridges cost, and the new printer will come with new ink as well.

Printing is printing blank sheet of paper


Lots of reasons here but usually it is because the software you are using to print is not compatible with the operating system anymore. Example: you used MS Photo Editor which was discontinued in 2003 and never supported under Windows XP. The one function that is broken is printing...it looks like it printed but a blank sheet of paper comes out. (exactly what you described)

Instead, use MS Picture and Fax Viewer or the follow-on product, MS Office Picture Manager.

If you remove the MS Photo Editor application under Control Panel/Software Programs then your picture files will open with a different (more print compatible and friendly) program.
